Radware’s Threat Analysis Report shows a spike in the number of DDoS attacks. Radware Cloud DDoS Protection Service mitigates 580,766 attacks in 2021.
Enterprises, post-pandemic have slowly started moving from their legacy infrastructure to predominantly cloud platforms. From small to large enterprises the movement towards the cloud has occurred considering various components such as remote and hybrid work structure, efficient and robust security mechanisms, cost-effectiveness, etc. But with digital transformation via cloud adoption comes the risk of an increased number of sophisticated attack techniques by threat actors. According to a prediction by Gartner, more than 95% of workloads will be digital by 2025 and this brings the challenge of facing cyber attacks against the cloud environment.
“DDoS has been one of the most used cyber-attack tactics against cloud where the number of attacks grew by 27% from2020 to 2021. To mitigate this, Radware’s Cloud DDoS Protection Service has been used by enterprises, where on an average 1,591 attacks per day were mitigated. It cannot be denied that, with the transformation being seen in technology, the vulnerability aspects too proportionally increase. Post-pandemic when the digital transformation got fast-paced, the vacuum left during the transition only allowed the cyber attacks to turn sophisticated. With an increasing number of organizations moving towards a virtual setup, cloud environment has become the new target of the threat actors,” said DR Goyal, Vice President at RAH Infotech.
